Imagine being left in that place , we the snakes and brown nosers . I’m so glad I took the voluntary, as I couldn’t bare it. It will be like a reptile enclosure at the zoo .
As per usual a post was removed that brought corporate managements ability in to question even though no names were mentioned nor did it break any of the forums rules. I hope corporate managers read this. If you aren't prepared to be questioned... — read more

Does anyone from other departments know how badly machinists are treated by the mob ? Does anyone else see what happens ?
I believe you will find that every person, including management want out. The only reason there is not a mass exodus is the current state of the job market. If there is a pick up, which won’t happen any time soon then most will leave. The writing is... — read more

The ones in question that have been removed are certainly no where near as bad as ones that have been left on here for weeks and are still on here. It seems DQ must be asking or getting help for certain posts to be removed. Especially ones where they... — read more
